From cars and trucks to planes, tractors, and forklifts, tires are used for a wide variety of vehicles. And those tires don’t last forever. Regardless of how many miles a tire travels, it should not be used longer than ten years past its manufacture date, as the rubber will grow brittle and can crack. This isn’t usually a problem, though, since most tires are replaced within three or four years. In fact, Americans generate nearly 285 million scrap tires per year. So, where do all those old tires go?
In most places, it is illegal to bury those whole scrap tires or dispose of them in landfills. In the U.S., the majority of states will not allow whole tire disposal. Instead, tire recycle facilities and programs typically shred these scrap tires. Tire shredding is a very common way of preparing scrap tires for disposal or recycle. In order to dispose of tires in a landfill, they must be shredded to various sized chips.
Many companies are investing in their own tire shredding systems. These companies are then able to sell the shredded tires and make a profit on them, instead of paying someone else to remove and dispose of their tires! That is where ECO Green comes in. We provide all the equipment that one would need to properly complete these tasks.
